This book you guys!!! It was amazing!! The journey that Charlie, the MC goes on is just so touching and fabulous. The way the author wrote the book, I felt like I had just sat down and had a friend tell me their most amazing story. LOVED IT! There are some pretty steamy scenes, so Mature Content warning.

This book is a new favorite! A mix of The Hunger Games, The Crucible, and The Handmaid's Tale. I was 100% into this book from the start and it was awesome all the way through!

Dystopian YA - Totally worth reading!

Who else has read this book??

A good dystopian novel with a well-created world. The characters were well-developed. I would have liked to know how the world crumbled to end up in this new one, but there will be a sequel, so there's still a chance to find out!! A great read for anyone who enjoyed Breathe by Sarah Crossen or Divergent by Veronica Roth!

Great characters that I quickly got interested in. Good writing that supported the character's stories. A great romance novella with some erotica spicing it all up.

This ARC was provided to me by the author in exchange for my honest review.

For Now & Always will publish on Dec 3, 2019.

What I Loved: The widows. They were adorable.
How I Felt: A bit confused when the thriller aspect came around, but it was a good addition to the story.
To Read or Not To Read: As long as you are ok with a bit of erotica mixed into your fiction/thriller, this was worth reading. It's a bit of a leisurely stroll through a story, not fast paced until the end.

The Book of Flora starts after Etta with Flora narrating. It jumps back and forth between her present & past.

I was on the struggle-bus for this entire book. I know a lot of people said they almost bailed, but then loved it. I stuck with it and was just disappointed.
I didn't connect with characters and their choices didn't make sense to me. The murder mystery seemed completely out of place in the story as well.

For now, it's time to move on to that next great book!
